SCHOOLS TO WATCH OUT FOR IN THIS YEARS’ NSMQ COMPETITION
Given their below-par performance at the regional championship one would think their chances would be slimmer but it’s quite far from that. They’ve proven to be perennial performers at the nationals. Don’t forget that the last time they fell to a first-round defeat in the regional competition (unofficial though) they made it to the semis.[irp]
Looking at all contests they’ve done this year they seem to be a little off the pace this time around but don’t write them off just yet. The zebra boys know how to maneuver their way through the national competition without necessarily being at their best. The experience of 4 consecutive finals could be the trick for them.[irp]
If they had not capitulated in the fourth round of their quarter-final tie Opoku Ware should have been in last year’s semifinal. With all the buzz going on after their Sharks quiz triumph perhaps Owass will finally get their hands on the trophy this year of after bottling so many final appearances.
They seem to be treading the path of a remarkable comeback. Following 3 years of exile, the men from the green camp seem to have found their mojo. They did enough to see off Apam SHS, Ghana National College and other schools in the first contest of the Regional Championship. They turned on the style in the finals of the Regional Competition where they hardly broke a sweat against Wey Gey Hey ( who pimped Mfantsipim to get to the final ) and UPSHS (who also beat Adisco). Perhaps we’re going to see a performance that will bring back memories of their 2007 winning side at this year’s national competition.[irp posts=”2998″ name=”Hot Video:Man storms a University Campus to collect all money he spent on his girlfriend after she dwagged him”]
If there’s one word to describe Prempeh College in the NSMQ for the past 6 or 7 years it has to be consistent. They seem to have found the winning formula to the NSMQ and rest assured they’ll be hoping to equal Presec, Legon’s haul of trophies.
The blue magic seems to have faded a little bit recently. Mfantsipim took them to the cleaners last year and this year doesn’t look too enterprising for them either as their Regional Championship performance would show. However, they’re still the Real Madrid of this competition and you can trust that their form in the Regionals could prove to have no effect on their national performance[irp posts=”1591″ name=”KNUST JUNCTION:Two killed in a car crash at KNUST junction”]
As defending champions, you have to put them ahead of the pack from the beginning. They didn’t seem to have a dog’s chance last year but somehow stunned competition surprise package WASS and consistent finalist, Adisadel College. Hopefully this year they’ll repeat the feat.
Its been a while since we actually considered Achimota in the NSMQ but following a scrappy win in the first contest of their regional competition and then a complete annihilation of Chemu SHS ( who had earlier on eliminated Presec, Legon) and St.Thomas Aquinas you have to believe that Achimota will come to the party in this year’s NSMQ contest
WESLEY GIRLS’ HIGH SCHOOL
Given that no girls’ school has made it to the finals for sometime now you probably think that this could be the year where Wey Gey Hey live up to their billing as arguably the best Senior High School in the country. Known for performing excellently in the WASSCE, perhaps its time that Gey Hey, much like Juventus, stops performing in their comfort zone and start catching the eye of people at the national competition.[irp]
This year’s competition promises to be as exciting as ever. And who knows probably none of these favourites will get their hands on the trophy and some other school will take us by storm just as WASS did last year. This is the NSMQ: The UCL of SHS Education in Ghana
